The Plan

Vision and Goals

A clear community vision emerged for the Robert Mueller Municipal Airport site in 1984 calling for the creation of a compact and pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use community.

Mueller’s Goals

The project should serve to reinforce Austin’s role in an increasingly global marketplace and create a wide range of employment opportunities for a diversity of the community’s citizens.

Fiscal Responsibility

Redevelopment must create a positive revenue stream that will fund on-site infrastructure and increase the City’s tax base for the benefit of all citizens.

Economic Development
The project should serve to reinforce Austin’s role in an increasingly global marketplace and create a wide range of employment opportunities for a diversity of the community’s citizens.
East Austin Revitalization
The project must promote economic development opportunities within East Austin, giving local residents a direct stake in redevelopment.
Compatibility with Surrounding Neighborhoods
Development must maintain and enhance the quality of life in adjacent neighborhoods, providing complementary linkages, land uses and transportation patterns.

Diversity & Affordability

Redevelopment must offer a wide range of housing choices in order to create a new community of socially and economically diverse residents.

Sustainability

Development should be planned in a way that promotes energy and water efficiency, resource protection, reduced auto dependency, watershed protection and green space preservation.
